Rum Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup
After tasting how incredible the bourbon barrel-aged was, we had to try aging some syrup in a rum barrel. Soaked in Vermont’s Mad River Distillery barrels for several months it transforms ordinary syrup into extraordinary! There is no alcohol in the syrup. It just has a great, smooth taste of rum! WytchWood syrup comes from maple trees grown in central Vermont. Hand wax-sealed and blessed, this is unlike anything you have ever experienced. Each and every bottle is represented by a God, Goddess, Pagan celebration or folklore icon.
Poseidon is the Olympian god of the sea, earthquakes, floods, drought and horses. One of the Twelve Olympians, he was also feared as the provoker of earthquakes and worshipped as the creator of the horse. The trident-bearing god had a role as a protector, particularly to mariners, and as the patron of horses and horse breeding. He is also called the "tamer of horses", as he created the first horse from the crests of the waves. He was often revered as a hot-blooded deity, but if Poseidon was pleased, he would bless sailors with a safe voyage in the sea, make the agricultural lands fertile, provide abundant supply of freshwater or would allow trade to flour. Poseidon had many disputes with both gods and men, most famously with Athena and Odysseus. Poseidon was the child of Kronos and Rhea, and brother to Zeus and Hades. What better flavor for this seafaring god than rum?
